Zach Rupp: My Music. My Story.
What is your favorite kind of music and why?
I love any and all genres of music, however I will always be a metalhead at heart. I love metal because the scene is like one big family and I’ve met a lot of awesome people through our shared love of metal music.
What does music mean to you?
Music is life. It can help me in any situation whether I’m happy or sad. It can also help me connect to others, which I think is awesome.
How has music influenced your life?
Music has influenced me to seek out and share with others. I love sharing music and seeing others enjoy it.
Do you think there are opportunities for music and beer brewing to intersect?
Yes, I for sure think that there are opportunities for music and beer events to coincide. A lot of events such as beer festivals, pouring events, and anniversary parties for breweries include music. A lot of these events include local artists exposing people to hometown musicians and music.
What is the best part about the work you do at TwoDEEP Brewing Co.?
There are many aspects of working at a brewery that I love. The biggest one is creating something that people can drink and enjoy. Being a part of that process is just an awesome experience.
How do you think art and music benefits the Indianapolis community?
I think art and music can benefit the community by exposing people to new ideas, emotions, and people. By doing so I think it can help create at tighter knit community and a sense of pride of the community that we live in.
What kind of music do you listen to when you are drinking a TwoDEEP beer?
Well as my one of my coworkers has put it, my taste in music is a haphazard plethora of sound. I will listen to anything and everything while enjoying a TwoDEEP beer. I’ll go from listening to French lounge music to blackened death metal then switch to some hip-hop.
